Wine Barrel Plus
Really I was joking when I told my girlfriend Susie the other night that I could get at least a hundred bucks for this wine on eBay. She looked at me wryly, "really?" and pop went the cork. I was cooking up some of the Halibut that Susie had caught las...

Dude, I went to Holdredge expecting that you would be pouring! Plus the last time I called you had to work. Anyway, I passed along your regards (and Mike Talty's) to Carrie. I'll have another two bottles there for you to pick up for me if you ever make it over that way. I love W. Sonoma, it's just so incestuous.Seriously, friends of ours had t... Read More
The next time you visit Barcelona, Spain, get yourself into the mountainous vineyard regions of Priorat and Montsant, just a short drive from this beautiful Mediterranean city. “Which region is which?” This may sound crazy but think of the regions as a fried egg! The yolk is Priorat, the surrounding egg white is Montsant. Not very technical I ag... Read More
I have been trying to find info on wine terminology. Im lost everytime I visit the wine section and read the reviews as I dont know what they mean. Please help. I enjoy red and whites that are not very sweet and not dry and that I can drink 3 sips at once without having to pucker. Not as sweet as Beringers white zifandel and not as dry as Mir... Read More
Mine started about six years ago when I met my wife. We played volleyball in an adult league against each other and hit it off at the bar after. We never drank wine together (only lots of beer) and the subject never came up. We had been "dating" a few weeks when I invited her over to make us dinner. She said she would bring a bottle of wine.... Read More
Vangelis was good before Gallo got to him. Just like they ruined all those wine brands. But I can name a half dozen of his songs I'd still listen to.(Y'know, tongue in cheek...)My daughter is in a band that plays for a circus. They are playing the "Chariots of Fire" theme, as well as Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger." I'm wearing headphones aroun... Read More

I got so excited about dolcetto this year, see my report on The Return of Dolcetto, that I almost forgot about Barbera! I love Barbera. It’s a rich wine, though too often spoofed up with too much oak, but when you find an example that focuses on the fruit you get a wine that is bursting with mouth cleansing acids, rich with plummy fruit, and li...

After graduating from medical school and before beginning indentured service as a resident physician, my wife and I decided we should make a trip out to California wine country and Yosemite. So, a week after moving to my new residency location, we pawned off the two year old on the grandparents and headed for the hills of California.We arrived i... Read More
As many of you might know I am half Italian, with family that comes from the province of Trentino in northern Italy. It’s where the seeds for my love for wine were originally planted, and there are plenty of fabulous wines produced there. Though little of it finds it’s way to our shores. That is slowly changing but the truth is there is only so ... Read More
Perhaps we could use a place to share recent purchases...Here are some '12 Burlotto Langhe Nebbiolo, which came highly recommended from a trusted friend who just got back from a month in Italy. I'm not seeing many available in the States quite yet, but was happy to find these locally. Read More
